"Fire" Auckland, New ZealandThis a photo that I made while living in Auckland, New Zealand. We were at downtown hotel to watch the Super Bowl. During the middle of the game there was a loud roar and the room shuddered. Everyone in the room fell silent for a moment.Then they went back to watching the game.
I had to investigate. I ran downstair and out onto the street to see what had happened. There had been an explosion in the building next to the hotel. I ran back upstairs told everyone watching the game what had happened (not one person quit watching the game) grabbed my camera and began shooting.
This became one of my better selling photos over many years as it was just generic enough to suitable for many many uses.
